Hey Guys, some of you might know I am hyper excited about DMC. I had listed it as my most anticipated game of 2013. I had pre-ordered it and was hyper excited because Devil May Cry was one of the first games I have ever finished, and I would call myself a fan of this franchise. But Capcom made me cancel my pre-order because they are Cpacom and have announced Day one DLC. But now I have played the demo. And sweet Jesus Christ it is so hard to resist. The 15minutes I played felt like a true Devil may Cry game.
The graphics are bad, it is not like Eye cancer or something but the game does not look as good as some of its competitors. Castlevania and God of War 3 looked much much better. But maybe it is just the level I played because the demo was really short (15mins) . I did not watch any cutscenes because I wanted to avoid spoilers, and I avoided the boss fight because of the same reason. Despite the graphics the artstyle of this game is fantastic, it has this dark tone the it had in the first and the 3rd part (the good parts).
So whats the biggest weakness of the demo and probably of the game? The camera, definetly the camera but to be honest I have never played a Hack´n Slay where I did not bitch about the camera altough GoW3´s cam was almost flawless. It is not a static camera where you see whats happening from a certain angle like in God of War it is moveable like in Akham City. And the problem is, in the fight you might oversee some enemy for a second or so. It is not a big deal, I just imagine it could be annoying here and there if you play on the highest difficulty like I do.
But the most important thing of this game is the combat. And the combat is the defintive Devil May Cry combat, you have an airlift button where you can throw your enemy into the air and when you got him there, then he is fucked. In the air you can juggle him with your sword, and mix it with your angel and devil weapons you can keep him in the air with Ebony and Ivory and slam him down if you press the airlift button again. And of course like in every other good Hack´n Slay game there are platforming parts, and those are cool altough I am not so big into platforming. But it makes for some diversity so I like it in those kind of games. And the platforming in this game works solid altough I died 3 times at the end because of the platforming. It is still cool, you have the good old double jump a hookshot and an airblast where you charge foward while you are in the air.
I really enjoyed the demo and will pre-order again despite my antpathy for Capcom.
I would like to know if some of you have played it how did you like it. And I don´t to hear things like Emo Dante or Crack Junky etc. because this is trolling and trolling will be reported.
